"The practices of the past are not relevant to the present we are living and the future we envision."
If every citizen in the United States could experience the graduation ceremony at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, N.Y., we once again would have civil discourse in a civil society. I left inspired and proud to be an American.
On Tuesday, June 5, we will host out first Webinar in the 2012 Series, BEING a Leader Live! Our conversation will be directly impacted by the questions and themes participants submitted when they registered—"Ask, don't tell" has become a model to live by.
On June 7, I will attend the Women's Leadership Initiative Summit of United Way and present a scholarship to Simone Phillips, born to a 14-year old mother in dire poverty in Guyana, South America, and subjected to abuse. She had much to overcome. Simone credits her healing to her mentor and therapist and has infused her life with a spirit of gratitude and determination. She lives by the notion, "Whatever is given to me, I will give away." Simone volunteers with Truth for Women and the Lehigh Valley prison system, where she shares her life experiences with other women. She is currently a psychology major at the Wescoe School of Muhlenberg College and plans to earn a master's in psychology. "I want to dedicate my life to helping women and adolescent girls break the cycle of abuse and lack of education," she says.
Improving lives through educational opportunities for those most at risk in our community is the leadership imperative of the day.

PROFILE IN INNOVATION: We-Care.org
Each month, we profile innovative sources—a person, organization, service or program—to inspire and inform our network.
Recently, the ASPCA was presented with a check for more than $200,000. The check was not from a foundation, or from an individual donor. The check was a culmination of online donations aggregated from the online shopping carts of the organization's supporters.
We have highlighted many programs, products, services and business approaches that create a new dimension of performance, increasing the bottom line, more deeply impacting clients, streamlining a process or procedure. Innovation, we have found, often occurs when the underlying foundation of a market shifts.
After World War II supermarkets and strip malls proliferated across Canada and the United States with the growth of automobile ownership and suburban development.
Today, we shop online. We book flights and hotels. We rent cars, hunt for shoes, apply for mortgages, buy furniture and household items. The list goes on. We-Care.com partners with these retail, travel, and financial merchants to create a link between online spending and online giving.

VINTAGE Guy Kawasaki, Leader to Leader Journal Article
Part of our to mission in publishing the Leader to Leader Journal is to address the strategic issues we face in trying times. Many have said that our content spans the boundaries of both time and audience: speaking relevantly to leaders of the social, public and private sectors.
We thought we might share a vintage article—in this case, one from 1997—written by Guy Kawasaki, when the history of the success of Apple was not so clearly written.
"So what does a chief evangelist do during the worst of times?" wrote Kawasaki, "First, you believe—sometimes you believe to the point where people accuse you of being delusional."
